“Art is not a thing, it is a way.” ~Elbert Hubbard

I love this quote by Elbert Hubbard (June 19, 1856 – May 7, 1915, American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher)..  What a simple, yet elegant way of stating a truth by which I live.  I often like to say art is not what we do, it is who we are.

Art is a way.  A way of seeing, a way of self-expression, a way of changing the world and a way of life.  These things all apply to both the artist and the viewer.

Something to think about the next time you look at a work of art.
